Concerns for Farah's 'bad legs' after toughest 10000m

German couple jailed for rape-murder of Chinese student

The 24-year-old, a double European Indoor champion, kept plenty in reserve and will be joined by Laura Weightman, Sarah McDonald and Jessica Judd as they all bid to reach Monday's final.

Yet the Briton was forced to produce his very best to earn a sixth world title, as his rivals combined to set a fierce pace in the final event of the championships' opening session. He celebrated on the track, walking a lap with his four kids, the youngest carried in his arms. Farah crossed the line in a World Leading time of 26:49:51 - Joshua Cheptegei's silver medal winning time was 26:49:96.

Her Majesty did not drop from a plane flanked by Daniel Craig to parachute into London's Olympic stadium.

Only one medal was going to be decided on First Friday - and the man of the (almost half) hour was Mo Farah. "It felt like they were in a training camp together, how they were working to together".

It was Hadis, the fastest man in the world this year, who led towards the closing stages, though Farah moved up towards his shoulder with two laps to go. "To come back five years later and win a gold medal, to try and win a gold medal, would be great".

Just 40 seconds or so earlier he had suffered a scare as he nearly tripped after a coming together with around 300m to go. "You'd be extremely confident he'd do exactly the same thing again in front of his home crowd".

Arsenal Defeats Chelsea In The Community Shield
The Gunners pushed for an equaliser, with Arsene Wenger sending on Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott for Lacazette and Alex Iwobi. But Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois blazed his kick over the crossbar followed by striker Alvaro Morata also missing.

Farah's focus now moves to the 5,000m heats on Wednesday ahead of next Saturday's final, his last global race before he switches to the marathon, and he is confident he will recover in time.

"I've got a bad leg", he explained. This was never going to be an easy race, and nothing could be taken for granted.

"It was a special moment for me ... to have my family on the track, to let them do a lap of honour with me was a once in a lifetime moment".

Farah told ITV News he is now determined to win gold in the 5,000m on Saturday, August 12, and end his track career on a high.

"You had the Kenyans, you had the Ethiopians, you had the Ugandans, everybody worked as a team against me". Is that all you got?

Brit Mo Farah who said he "owe" his excellent performances to his home fans added; "It was about believing in my sprint finish and knowing that I have been in that position before". Mo's last ever 10,000m in a Championship in his favourite stadium.

Rabada rocks England with late strike
We'll be keeping a close eye on his (Hameed's) championship game (against Hampshire) on Sunday and we want him to make runs. He might have departed first ball, as he whooshed into a nervy and hard-handed drive to an exocet from Rabada outside off.

The other great retiring superstar, Usain Bolt, remains on course for his own golden farewell after easing through the first round of the 100m.

While Farah gasped his way to a lung-busting victory over 10,000 metres, Bolt looked as though he was barely out of breath after topping the pile in his 100-metre heat with a time of 10.08 seconds.

It brought back memories of his wins here over 5,000 and 10,000m at the Olympic Games in 2012.

With it looking like one of the quicker 10,000m we have seen, they hit the last mile with Farah still looking very much in contention for a testing finish.

Holly Bradshaw is also into the pole vault final after a first-time clearance at 4.50m.
